Let us make the world a better place to live.
Let us save the world
Let us leave a clean earth for our children
Let us not use up all our resources
Recycle, Reuse, Reduce
No more war, no more bloodshed, no more loss of life, no more collateral damage, no more innocent lives lost
No more cruelty against animals………
Wonder how we can accomplish such lofty goals to truly promote world peace and harmony? It almost seems impossible to accomplish the ideals in this short life time we have been each given. It seems a task that is so big that there does not seem to be enough time in the day to do everything you want to achieve…So how can we? Obviously we all want to preserve this manifestation of divinity, we call nature..
First of all to be able to even conceptualize preservation we all have to have a sense of ownership of this earth we live on. If we all accept the fact that this earth belongs to us and we have to do everything to safegaurd it. To accept earth belongs to all of us equally we have to change our mindset of man made boundaries.
To expand our horizons we have to change our perceptions of what belongs to us. The house we live in, is ours, but the house is surrounded by a yard which is ours, but the yard is in a small subdivision which is in a our community. However the community is in the small town which is in a city, which is in a state, which is in our country, which is in a continent, which is in a hemisphere, which is part of our earth, which is part of the milky way galaxy, which is in our universe. So ultimately the universe is ours. So if the universe is ours why would we not do everything in our power to preserve? The answer is simple the universe is too large to conceptualize and understand the sense of belonging. In our limited capacity to understand such vastness humans loose track of their mission of preservation of this vast divinity.
To make it easier for comprehension and conceptualizing the meaning of ownership within each of our limited capacities we must then try to make the task as achievable as possible. This universe is ours how do we preserve it while promoting intellectual progress which is equally important and essential?
Living as cave men again is stagnation. Intellectual stagnation does not promote progress. Intellectual capacities are ever expanding and was intended to be harnessed by divine power. We need industrial world as much as we need the plants and forests and natural resources. We cannot stop intellectual revolution. History has taught us that. During the Renaissance period intellectual progress was unstoppable which led to the modern world of industrialization eventually.
Thus while we promote human intelligence in our every day life we have to have a sense of ownership of something small enough that our human vision can conceptualize. To simplify this enormous task we need to tread backwards again. This universe is ours but it is too big to take care of single handedly, so let us take care of our milky way galaxy, but that is too big too, so let us take care of our earth, which is too big too, so let us take care of our hemisphere, but that is too big too, so let us take care of our continent, but that is too vast so let us take care of our country, but that is too big let us take care of our state, but this is too large too, so let us take care of our town which is not small enough, let us take care of our community, but that is not manageable enough so let us take care of our subdivision which is still so big, so let us take care of our yard, which is still unmanageable, so let us take care of our house but that is still a quite a large task. So then the only think we have left is take care of ourselves. If each one of us take up the mission of preserving our own integrity and sanctity it would promote the integrity and sanctity of the small area around you which then would expand the sense of well being to the entire universe indirectly.
The way to preserving our own integrity and sanctity is by doing all your daily life duties by way of spiritual dedication. Through spirituality actions will be performed to the very best of abilities, the outcome of actions will not cause distress. Changes in the environment will be accepted as they happen. There will be no mental distress and nobody to blame. Choices made in life will be through the same spiritual judgment.
Actions done out of such pure thoughts can only promote peace and harmony.
I know this is a tall order goal to achieve but it may be a better solution than wanting the world to change around you to preserve the divine goodness.
